Low fluid and sex Lindsay1089 Due May 1 (girl); 1 child; Indiana 75 posts

Is it safe to have sex when your fluid is low? I had a ultrasound yesterday and my fluid was a little low I go in for another ultrasound next week to see if my fluids have went up but I completely forgot to ask weather or not sex was safe. They didn't tell me I was restricted to anything and they also never told me any ways to make it go back up.

I think if they didn't mention it sec would be fine. And drink lots and lots of water , no carbonation, no caffeine.

Are you leaking or is it just low?




If you are leaking fluid then they will tell you no intercourse because of risk of infection.

No I haven't been leaking just low. And yeah I've read to drink lots of water that's all I've drank since I found out yesterday that it was low :).

I was told complete bed and pelvic rest when I was diagnosed with low fluid, but for me the levels were dangerously low.

Yeah mine weren't dangerously low, they were just a little over low. I'm hoping they go back up by my next ultrasound I don't want her early she's on 3 lbs and so many oz that'd be a small baby!

I went to the doctor on Tuesday and that's when my ultrasound was that they told me it was low. But they never said I was restricted to anything :/
